Granny Makeover San Diego Procedure

No one can escape time and getting older, but there are a number of plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures available that can keep grandmas looking their best for years to come! Gravity and the natural deterioration of muscle and tissue can have a negative effect on a woman’s body over time, affecting them both physically and emotionally. Oftentimes it isn’t possible to restore one’s youthful body through just diet and exercise alone. Luckily, for the grandmas of the world who desire a firmer, tighter body, the doctors at Prime Plastic Surgery can perform a Granny Makeover.

The Granny Makeover procedure is actually a combination of several different procedures that, when used together, produce amazing results. Since every woman has different needs, each Granny Makeover can vary in procedures, thus tailoring each surgery to the patient’s restorative needs. Some of the procedures that can be combined in a granny makeover are Tummy Tuck, Liposuction, Breast Lift, Breast Augmentation, and Reduction.

Normally, the Granny Makeover surgery is performed in either one or two surgeries, with each individual surgery ranging in from 3 to 6 hours. In regards to the breast augmentation portion of a granny makeover the are a variety of factors that affect the procedure. Placement of the implant is usually centered on the nipple-areola. Often, placement above or below the muscle is decided on an individual basis. Likewise, the incisions used to place the implant vary with patient preference and anatomy.
